Today I am feeling a little sentimental,OK,honestly,a lot sentimental and lonely.
Because of this I am choosing to share some of Jake's pictures.
I want to remember what a good photographer he was,even though he would have never admitted that.
Here are a few more slide scans,taken many years ago,but the beauty Jake captured is still just as lovely.
This first picture was probably taken about 18 years ago.This is an Obedient Plant,in our garden here in town.
The Screech Owl goes back much further than that.
I will not venture a guess on when it was taken.
Same goes for this Tree Swallow.
I know we had several nest boxes up for them in the country,so it must be at least 20 years ago,maybe more.
The Yellow-bellied Sapsucker,was perhaps about 18 or 19 years ago. I do remember the location and the circumstances from this shoot.
Dates don't matter,the bird still looks just the same.
Oh how I would love to be at this place with my Sweetheart.
This is taken in Whiteshell Provincial Park,in eastern Manitoba.
I cannot tell where this might have been taken.It matters not,the scene is one of beauty.I think it may be close to Whiteshell Park,but I could be wrong.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing some more of Jake's work.
It makes him feel so much closer when I see these images,so I am doing this as much for myself as for others.
This is a verse I still claim and remind myself of often,
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;and when you pass through the rivers,they will not sweep over you.
when you walk through the fire,you will not be burned;the flames will not set you ablaze.
